Personalized Home Wish List
If you're looking to buy a new home sometime in the near future but feel unsure as to what to look for, I can help you create a very detailed home buying wish list! I will interview you via messaging with over 40 questions covering all the basics as well as stuff you might never have thought about, but probably should. It will be a fun exercise to think these things through and imagine your ideal future home!
Of course its important to remember that the chances of finding a home that fits every single one of your ideal characteristics perfectly are, well... very very small! But that's no reason to fret. You should be able to identify which items are most important to you based on how strong of a reaction you have and how you feel when answering my questions. When we're done, try to pick out your top 5 "must haves", another 5 "would really like to have" and another 5 "would be nice". All of this information will be invaluable to you and your Realtor when you start your house hunt!
There are 2 major things that I won't be able to touch on and those are location and budget. Since I do not know the area where you live it wouldn't be much use to talk about it, that's a conversation to have with a Realtor in your area. And budget should be discussed with a loan officer. There are also lots of websites where you can plug in your income and debts and it will give you an idea of how much house you can afford. Although location and budget are obviously extremely important, having a strong understanding of all the many other things you're looking for in a home will put you on the right path and provide a framework for your search!
When we're all done I will provide you with a Word document of all your answers for your records.
Training & Qualifications
I have worked for a real estate company for 6 years. I've had exposure to a myriad of different types of houses and housing situations and hundreds of conversations with real estate agents about it all! I am not a licensed real estate agent myself but I am passionate about homes and find the process of finding the right home for the right buyer fascinating!
Availability & Preferences
I will ask you a few questions at a time via messaging here on Simbi and you can answer at your leisure. I'm mostly available nights and weekends but sometimes can spare a minute during the day too to keep the questions rolling at you!
